Beech Acres Park
Beech Acres Park is a favorite among Anderson Township residents of all ages! This multi-use park boasts amenities to suit a variety of recreational interests including an all-children’s playground and water play, rentable shelters, an amphitheater, a Firefighter’s Memorial, athletic fields, volleyball and basketball courts, restrooms, and a skatepark, all surrounded by a paved hike/bike trail. Beech Acres Park is also the site for some of the park district’s most popular events such as summer Concerts in the Park, A Fair of the Arts and Greater Anderson Days.
Adjacent to the park is the Anderson Parks RecPlex, home to the Recreation Department. The RecPlex features a gym and classroom space for many of the park district’s year-round programs, events and leagues.
Hours of Operation
- Park: Open from dawn to dusk, 365 days a year, excluding special events.

The official “opening” of the re-developed park took place in conjunction with the Greater Anderson Days celebration on July 30 – August 1, 2004.
Between 1993 and 1997, this property was leased from the Beech Acres Parenting Center. In 1997, the Anderson Park District purchased the land containing athletic fields and has since re-developed the park into a multi-use facility.
